throwing a fit in washington today, wait until they come out and say this means getting rid of the mortgage deduction that people get on their mortgages or giving money to their church or university, that's where the money is in deductions. that's something that a lot of people use and it has very powerful support in the country washington and the country at large. >> jennifer: if you do that by closing loopholes you still can't come up with enough money unless you basically eliminate them right? >> right, and you know, it's a few $100 billion perhaps. again, i don't think it's sort of asymmetrical warfare. the obamas put together a plan. if you jack up the rates on the top earners you'll get more money, and more money will be withheld from their salaries and they'll owe more at the end of the year. by contrast if you talk about ways of eliminating deductions without saying which ones they are, that doesn't get you far. that's been in the conversation for the la many years in washington. >> jennifer: carrie, you talked about a compromise. in a way to give the republicans a way of saving fac

morning show the only progressive morning show anywhere on cable television. here in washington, d.c., big night at the concernedkennedy center last year as the kennedy eye wards were awarded to dustin hoffman and talk show host david letterman. there was one sole protester out in front of the kennedy center jay leno. he had a big sign saying what about me? why dave? what about me? we will tell you more about the kennedy center honors and a lot more. let's get the latest. today's current day's update lease a ferguson standing buy in los angeles. hey, good monday morning, lease a. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. happy monday. hope y'all had a good weekend. the president gets to take a little bit of a break from the fiscal cliff today. he got that around 11 eastern last night after hosting reception for the ken see center awardees. it celebrates talent in art and music. the recipients included david letterman, dustin hoffman and the surviving members of led zeppelin. the president is the addressing defense issues nationally and globally. he tol
here in washington. it is a heated rivalry. >> bill: even if your team loses, don't you think you would wear the gear? >> i have the hat. i am absolutely loyal. they played a solid game last night. right up until they didn't win. >> they almost won. >> spoken like a true fan. they played a great game until they lost. >> bill: here's what it sounded like on espn right at the end there. >> rejuvenated football in the nation's capital. redskins and giants split. it looks like they've won a game here at fedex field. and all they are is within a game of the division lead. >> bill: 17-16. >> i will say as a giants fan the redskins are a solid contender this year and they have a fabulous rookie quarterback. >> bill: rgiii. >> he's very good. >> bill: there we go. we've got the nats and redskins coming up. whoa suddenly, sports town. >> i wouldn't get too carried away with that. the last couple of games they looked very good. they also lost to the panthers this season and they had some very terrible games. if th

there is hope afterall. joining me now from washington is republican strategist and author of the book "blackwards," ron christie. thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room" again. >> governor, it is nice to see you again. >> jennifer: all right. so do you think republicans have recovered from losing the election? >> well, i think we have. i think there's no question that although president obama got less of the popular vote than he did the last time around, his electoral college numbers went up. he won. but the other thing that i would say to you governor, is senate republicans, the american people voted for the status quo. they kept the republicans running the majority in the house of representatives to keep a check on the executive branch and so while we did take a shellacking in the presidential election, we still have one of the houses of congress -- it is up to the congress to negotiate with the president. >> jennifer: i gotta stop you on that though because the democrats won the popular vote in the house r
, welcome about this. phil is out in spokane washington. hey, phil, good morning. >> caller: good morning, bill. >> bill: early morning out there on the west coast. >> caller: i'm a cook county democrat. and a steelworker. the fact of the matter is i want the right wing to step up and take responsibility for the ripple effect of air-traffic controllers because every time somebody dies in a right to work state, a coal mine and yes, in the gulf, that blood is on their hands. i've been -- osha becomes two-fer and the worker becomes -- indispensable. for the fact of the matter is every time a right to work state emerges, you have jim crow for the working man and woman in that state. he has no right. that's all i've got to say this morning. >> bill: hey phil, i appreciate your weighing in. it is true that in state after state after state evidence has shown not only are wages lower but working conditions in terms of health and safety for employees are a lot more perilous and as phil points out that has consequences. igo
marijuana. george washington and thomas jefferson and james monroe and james madison grew hemp. interesting. those guys all grew hemp. of course, our last three presidents also used drugs. >> when i was inning grand i experimented with with marijuana a time or two and didn't like it and didn't inhale and never tried it again. >> cenk: i like clinton as a president but that was the most ridiculous lie i ever heard. then there was george w. bush. in a secret recording to a guy named doug weed, he said. >> of course he didn't mind putting those kids in jail for exactly what he tried. here's president obama. >> when i was a kid i -- i inhaled. frequently. that was the point. >> so it's all very funny of course when president obama jokes about it, but none the less all these people go to jail anyway for the same thing the last three done. jay carney says: >> cenk: our hypocrisy also remains unchanged. one guy fighting back is the executive director of harborside health center, one of the largest dispensaries in california. he's been a marijuana advocate for 20 years. it's great to have you with

declined unions themselves have had less political clout to do things in washington to get things done on behalf of average working people. so, for example as globalization and technological change has affected the structure of the work force there's been no loud, organized force in washington that has said essentially no! we've got to have job retraining. we've got to have better education. we've got to have profit sharing. we have to have productivity sharing. we've got to have arrangements that while not counteracting globalization, nevertheless counteract the effects of globalization and make sure the middle class is safe. without that union voice, the new class has become less and less secure. >> eliot: of course, as we all have learned over the past number of years, one of the critical elements of politics is the phrasing you use to describe an issue or problem saying these are right-to-work laws is a misnomer. first point you made this has nothing to do with the right to work. who can be off owessed to th
